Just to let you know that I got the built-in Ethernet of the X250 now running.
I tried my luck and just patched the Arca Noae driver "e1000b.os2" to accept the [8086:15A2] instead of [8086:5A15].
I write this now on my X250 using the built in Ethernet. :)

On one peer network with some W7 machines I am able to connect on other it is refused. Checking W7 settings seems to be equal for me over all the machines so I have no clue why different results popping up.

Hi Doug,
Zender BIOS is based at the original ones. And of course you can update the BIOS back to official ones from Lenovo using the flashing tool. So no big risk. I use the ASUS W330n ( for cases I have only Ethernet available and need WiFi.

On the X200 there was a 5300agn card installed. I exchanged it to 3945abg which was supported by GenMAC out of the box. I first tried to use the 5300 in unsupported mode but had bad luck. I had to use a patched BIOS (Zender BIOS) to enable the 3945 card. Otherwise it would have been black listed by the BIOS. Strange because it is an IBM/Lenovo approved card.
I guess I have to go same direction with the X250. Not sure if there is a patched BIOS already available. I will have to check.

Hi Martin,

I made some edits on the wiki page according to PCI.exe (with pcidev.txt 20140303 form Hobbes) and some data from Lenovo.

Best regards,

Dear All,

I just want to let you know about my effort to install OS/2 (eCS v.2.1) on a new Thinkpad X250. Goal was to transfer my existing system from Thinkpad X200 to new X250, dual boot Win & OS/2 via AirBoot. On X200 I have working installation with latest drivers from Arca Noae. Not working on the X200 are Bluetooth and built in camera. Everything else including Ethernet, WiFi and USB are working fine.

Installation on X250 from USB-CD/DVD-ROM failed. eCS v2.1 startet up to maintenance screen bot no HDD was found. eCS v2.2 BetaII even did not start up from CD/DVD-ROM.

By suggestion from Sigurd I tried to clone my existing system using DFSee. :) This finally worked after some trouble with partition alignment.

Status now on X250 is a working eCS v.2.1 with ACPI showing 4 cores, full support of native screen resolution via PANORAMA, working USB (mouse and thumb drive tested as well as USB keyboard in docking station) after disabling USB3.0 in BIOS. Not working at this time is network (neither Ethernet nor WiFi). It will need more investigation what might be possible there.

If there is any progress I will let you know.

Applications / Coolreader 3.1.2

Does somebody get the new Coolreader version 3.1.2 running?
Missing DLL "fntcnf1.dll" alraedy found with this link "". But it still refuses to start. It was not noted in the "install.os2" that this dll is needed. However without it I got a failure notice if missing FNTCNF1.
All packages listed in install.os2 via RPM/YUM installed and are actual according to ANPM.
What else might be missing to get it running?

WPA_Supplicat v2.3 failed on my X200 with an D-LINK DIR-615 router, but version 2.2 is able to connect.

Tried today on my X200 together with "Intel 3945 a/b/g [8086:4227] - GenMAC". Works as well as WPA-Supplicant version 2.2. Seems to be a little bit faster in establishing the connection.
